Local chefs craft PB&J for a good cause

TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

This is one of those stories that will probably stick to the roof of your mouth.

An event called Jam City, a gourmet peanut butt and jelly party, was held Thursday night.

Local chefs joined together to create one of a kind recipes offering a new twist on this lunchbox classic.

You could wash down your PB&J with locally crafted beers, and there was live entertainment.

The whole event was a fundraiser for the group ‘Food for Thought', which offers free lunch programs with help from the Seagate Food Bank and donations from various sources.

Nearly 1,400 households are fed every month from the charity.

"We actually have a mobile food pantry.  We have two sixteen foot trucks that we turn into mobile food trucks," said Food for Thought's Sam Melvin.  "We go to different host sites, churches, YMCA.  We create a food pantry wherever we go."

Thursday's sold out event attracted 400 people who paid $30 each, which will be used to feed the hungry in our area.
